Today, I have my very good friend, Lori Wilde as a guest. She’s not only my friend, she’s a spectacular writer, and I’m so excited to have her here talking about her book, Love at First Sight, which releases TODAY! I’ll be giving away TWENTY prizes so keep reading! Now, without further adieu, take it away, Lori . . .
I’m so excited about the release of LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, the first book in my Cupid, Texas series.
Cupid is a fictional town set in the Trans-Pecos of Texas. It’s based on an amalgamation of Alpine, Marfa and Fort Davis, although all three real towns make an appearance in the series.
The Trans-Pecos is the home of the Davis Mountains that rise out of the Chihuahuan desert. It’s an eerily beautiful place, both harsh and majestic. The people who live there are a special breed of resilient individualists. In this isolated country, they understand the priceless value of community. It’s a land like no other.
My husband and I made a recent trip to Fort Davis and we were lucky to see the mysterious Marfa lights that make an appearance in LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get a good picture of them. But like my hero and heroine, Dade and Natalie, my husband and I did get to visit Prada Marfa. This piece of unique art in the middle of the desert put a smile on my face.
Hopefully, I did justice to this wonderful land in the pages of my books. If you ever get a chance to visit the Davis Mountains, jump at it! Any trip there will be memorable.
I’m giving away ten copies of ONE TRUE LOVE, the prequel novella to the Cupid, Texas series. Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing and specify if you’d like ebook or print copy.
What about you? Have you ever been to a place that struck an emotional chord inside you?
Thanks, Lori! So, today, besides Lori’s gifts, I’m giving away TEN copies of LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, her novel that releases today! So don’t forget to leave those comments! You have between now and Friday to enter then- this is a little different – check back right here on FRIDAY to see if you’ve won! Good luck and Happy Reading!
